The Group, headed by the Levy family has made it its mission to become vertically integrated offering poultry products from feed, fertilized eggs, chicks to fully grown cocks and hens.

Vice President of Finance, Ian Persaud said that this acquisition now means that Jamaica Broilers now has two operations in the United States and if one were to go down, the other can service its various markets.
